John Waters- Best of 2010

Un clásico navideño en el blog. La lista de mejores películas del año según John Waters, que cada año publica en la web de Artforum.

Copio y pego:

1 Domaine (Patric Chiha) My favorite movie of the year. A forty-year-old alcoholic aunt (played by Béatrice Dalle—“Betty Blue” herself!) and her gayish teenage nephew form a perversely close relationship by taking walks together. Lots of walks! So many walks you’ll be left breathless by the sheer elegance of this astonishing little workout.

2 Enter the Void (Gaspar Noé) The best film ever about taking hallucinogenic drugs. Seizure-inducing title credits, cinematography that looks as if it were shot by a Gerhard Richter–influenced kamikaze pilot—even vagina cams. Gaspar, thank you. You’re my sweetheart.

3 Buried (Rodrigo Cortés) The most excruciatingly painful date movie imaginable comes complete with a very smart feel-bad ending. See it with someone you hate.

4 Ricky (François Ozon) A great special-effects movie, though there’s only one effect: a flying baby. If David Lynch and David Cronenberg had sex and one of them magically got pregnant, this film could be their offspring.

5 Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work (Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg) Talk about granting access! Are you crazy, Joan?! If Jews went to confession, this film would be a sacrament.

6 Jackass 3D (Jeff Tremaine) A scatological, gay, s/m, borderline snuff movie amazingly embraced by a wide, American blue-collar family audience. Isn’t Steve-O chugging down a glass of sweat collected from the ass-crack of an obese man and then vomiting at you in 3-D the purest moment of raw cinema anarchy this year?

7 Life During Wartime (Todd Solondz) Paul Reubens (without a trace of Pee-Wee) is a suicidal ghost who’s still miserable, and Charlotte Rampling plays a bitter, self-loathing hotel hornball. Both performances will break your heart.

8 Dogtooth (Yorgos Lanthimos) If your parents raised you into your teen years without ever once letting you out of the house and taught you that “outside” means climbing in the trunk of the family car and locking yourself in, are you in mental trouble? Hilarious, original, and very discomfiting, the way movies should be.

9 Carlos (Olivier Assayas) I loved all five-plus hours of this French hymn to celebrity revolutionary–turned-mercenary Carlos the Jackal. He’s so sexy that even militant, left-wing German feminist terrorists give him head and his own hostages ask for his autograph.

10 Mesrine (Parts 1 and 2) (Jean-François Richet) Four and a half more hours about another French criminal–folk hero–stud. Who’s badder? More butch? Cuter nude? Carlos or Jacques Mesrine? Why not a subtitled ten-hour “Freddy vs. Jason” combined sequel about both? In Sensurround, s’il vous plaît.

  2. Watesam Says:

    Solo me vi 4 y solo hay una de la que no se que pensar, a estas alturas no puedo decir si buena o mala Buried si es de admirar dado su presupuesto

    Enter the Void

    peliculones, si Waters lo dice

    Felices fiestas Dr.

  3. BAngBAng Says:

    Qué risa lo que dice de “Ricky”, si es que al final tendré que verla. Y tomo muy buena nota de “Domaine”, tengo mono de Beatrice Dalle.

    Yo ya tengo mi top five, ha sido un año muy bueno para el mainstream:

    1. Buried
    2. The social network
    3. Inception.
    4. Los ojos de Julia
    5. Io sono l’amore

    (Esta última la acabo de ver y me ha dejado en éxtasis, si John Waters la hubiese visto la hubiese incluido en su lista, fijo.)

  4. La mitad de las que elige Waters son francesas (!!!!) y este año no ha incluido la última de Woody Allen

    He visto 4/10. me encantan Buried y Life During Wartime. Ricky me sacó de quicio y mira que soy fans de Ozon..

    Añadiría The Killer Inside Me

    Muchas ganas de ver las de Mesrine y Carlos. Enter the Void me da muucha pereza, como todo lo de Gaspar Noe

  5. Vaya por Dios, ni una.
